Exciting News!!!

Ok so really I just want to tell you my big news, I can't wait much longer, but how awesome is this bed I found in the October issue of 25 Beautiful Homes?! To have an upholstered bed like that...what a dream!

Now my news! Last night I got engaged!!! I still can't believe it! The last 14 months of my life with Chris have been the best of my life. I never thought I'd meet anyone like him...a heart so filled with absolute kindness and enthusiasm. And so cute and smart too! I feel like the luckiest girl ever. Talk about a total surprise...never in a million years did I think that would happen, like it did, yesterday of all days. But it was perfect, so us. I'm so happy. So so so happy!!! And so so so excited!!!




Someone pinch me...I still can't believe it!!!

Erin this is sooooo exciting, Congratulations. I have been married for over 40yrs and I still remember the day he asked me. The funny thing was I said let me wash my hand and put lotion on before I put the ring on. I still can not believe I did that. I guess I wanted the first look of the ring on my hand to look perfect, too funny. Enjoy this excitement. You will find yourself passing by mirrors and putting your hand up to see it!! So excting, Congrats to you and Chris what a cute couple you make!! Kathysue

* Sending you BOTH the VERY B*E*S*T, on this, one of the HAPPIEST, MOST MEMORABLE times of your young lives!!!

I was a "stewardess" in the days before they were called "flight attendants", & the first day I worked, after getting my ring, I was greeting the passengers over the mike... I kept holding the mike in my left hand, palm facing me, and hand held SOOOO high so that EVERYONE could see/share in my incredible excitement that day! (And share they did!!! They couldn't HELP but NOTICE... not only by the ring, but by the sheer JOY of the moment written all over my face!!!)... That was 43 years ago, and I'm soooo glad we were SO BLESSED!!!

I wish ALL of EVERYTHING GREAT n' WONDERFUL for you two also!!! (One TEENY BIT OF ADVICE?~ REMEMBER to LAUGH with each other & be BEST FRIENDS, as WELL as LOVERS!!!

Happy blessings, Erin, to both you and Chris!!!

Congratulations! Getting engaged is such a magical moment and being married is even better. To have your best bud with you to experience life is just so precious!

I came across your blog a couple of years ago when I typed in "turqoise" to get inspiration for my own turqoise theme wedding. I haven't stopped getting inspired since then.
Luckily I married a wonderful man who points out anything that is turqoise everywhere we go and doesn't mind if my obsession with this color. Now my project is filling our home with nothing but turqoise goodness!

Nothing but happiness to you both!Spectacular ring too!
